Blu-ray Review – Sing (2016)

21 March 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sing, 2016.

Directed by Garth Jennings and Christophe Lourdelet.

Featuring the voice talents of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Jennifer Saunders, Jennifer Hudson, Nick Offerman, Peter Serafinowicz, and Nick Kroll.

Synopsis:

Sing is now available on home video in a Blu-ray + DVD + digital copy release that features a small smattering of bonus features. Given the lightweight nature of the movie, though, that’s probably to be expected.

Some movies speak to a very specific audience. In the case of Sing, it’s anyone who aspires to become an entertainer and become a star who rises to fame from humble beginnings. My daughter has done a few local theater shows, so I’ve been around kids whose idea of a good time on a Friday night is to put on an abbreviated version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in their living »

Lego Worlds Hands-On Preview

28 February 2017 8:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Emma Withington reports from the Lego Worlds preview…

In a universe full of explorable Lego chunks, dive – crash land – into a world made entirely out of Lego, where dinosaurs, astronauts, dragons, and Peter Serafinowicz can coexist.

Explore. Discover. Create. Together.

After two years in Early Access on Steam, Lego Worlds is now on the home stretch to its full release on the 10th of March. Presented with the PS4 release version by Chris Rose (Associate Producer at Tt Games), it was time to see the result of this gruelling process and if Lego Worlds has become the game you hoped it would be. 

Lego Worlds aims to set itself apart from its video game siblings, by focusing on the creative heart of the Lego brand rather than its story driven counterparts. While there are set objectives to obtain the signature Gold Bricks, which allow you to ascend the ranks to Master Builder glory, »

John Wick: Chapter 2 review – a bigger, bloodier, broodier sequel

16 February 2017 2:45 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Well-executed follow-up ramps up the shootouts, leaving monosyllabic Keanu Reeves never more than 9mm from a bloody gun battle

John Wick, Keanu Reeves’ first hit in almost a decade, arrived in 2014 as a brisk, limber counterblast to the excesses of the Marvel and Fast & Furious universes, configured by ex-stuntman Chad Stahelski towards non-virtual, live-on-location fisticuffs. The sequel succumbs to Hollywood inflation, cranking up the budget, volume and running time, and pitching Reeves’s reluctant assassin into new forms of carnage every 15 minutes. Climaxing with a gallery shootout that underlines the films’ aspirations to pop art, that carnage can feel video-gamey, yet it remains imaginatively designed and executed: Stahelski is among the few action directors whose big guns still pointedly demand reloading.

The impact, however, gets muffled by extra layers of the nerdy (under)world-building through which the first movie cut such a stylish dash. Business with metaphysical ledgers and gold »

Second Opinion – John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

14 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick: Chapter 2, 2017.

Directed by Chad Stahelski.

Starring Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ruby Rose, Common, Claudia Gerini, Lance Reddick, Tobias Segal, Ian McShane, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Peter Stormare, Laurence Fishburne, and Franco Nero.

Synopsis:

After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life.

Action cinema is in a sort of dirge at the moment where geriatric superstars – Liam Neeson, Denzel Washington, Kevin Costner – fight valiantly against disposable henchman while being cut to shreds in the edit room because to truly believe them as dangerous would be to take too big a leap of faith. Enter real life Dorian Grey, Keanu Reeves, appearing once more as he did with Neo way back in 1999 with John Wick, a character in a similar mold to those mentioned – vengeance induced by death (of his dog) – who was brought »

Review: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ is a Clever, Satisfying Expansion

8 February 2017 10:08 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

John Wick‘s box-office score made inevitable another go-round with the seemingly undefeatable assassin whose soft spot for muscle cars and puppy dogs led to a whole lot of trouble, in turn making inevitable the fear (at least for yours truly) of diminishing returns. Is there any way one of this century’s leaner, finer American action movies wouldn’t be given the bigger-is-better treatment? Probably not. What about the kick-ass picture really needed an adding-to? Whatever its flaws, John Wick hit where it counts — a place where improvement is possible, certainly, if not so necessary when running the risk that a good time be diminished with weak imitation. Now that a sequel is upon us, you may ask: is it a step towards something better?

The answer is a bit of yes and no both, and that, I’m happy to report, is just fine. Closer to an expansion »

John Wick: Chapter 2 Review

7 February 2017 11:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

John Wick: Chapter 2 turns a familiar page in Keanu Reeves’ cartoonish assassin franchise. Back are the stylized “Gun Fu” battles, lavish locales and adorable dogs (who are safe this time), like some Mmo violence-fetish video game. Pacifists be warned – infinite henchmen feed John Wick’s cold, calculated bodycount. Those of you growing tired of head-exploding finishers will find little value in this savage, blood-soaked sequel. Thugs simply line-up to be blasted by Wick’s deadshot aim. The titular hitman appears invincible as he endures stab wounds and gunshot impacts, displaying little vested interest in portraying death for what it is – but goddamn if Chapter 2 isn’t more gorgeous body-snapping brutality.

Did you really think I was about to go soft, there? Not today, people. John Wick: Chapter 2 revs a supercharged engine that runs on gunpowder and Reeves’ marble-etched intensity. Showmanship overplays the lack of honor among killers, with »

‘Sing’ Review

3 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Jennifer Saunders, Peter Serafinowicz, Nick Kroll, Beck Bennett, Nick Offerman | Written by Garth Jennings | Directed by Christophe Lourdelet, Garth Jennings

Whilst Disney seem to be raiding their animated back-catalogue in the hopes of finding their next big cinema hit, abandoning the joyous nature of the animated movie for more dour live-action versions, it’s left to other studios – like Dreamworks, Illumination etc. – to keep the slew of animated kids film coming. Current kings of the CG-animated movie Illumination Entertainment, who also have Despicable Me 3 out later this year, hit cinemas early with Sing, a truly family-orientated film that takes it’s story from the current popularity of the TV talent show.

Sing tells the story of Buster Moon (McConaughey) a koala who grew up with a passion for theatre. However that passion does not »

Garth Jennings interview: Sing, Roald Dahl and more

25 January 2017 10:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brendon Connelly Jan 27, 2017

As Sing arrives in UK cinemas, we chat to its director, Garth Jennings, about lunchbreaks, the movie, and Roald Dahl.

I’m a huge fan of Garth Jennings’ work, from his milk-carton music videos to funny monkey TV ads, and into his feature films, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy and Son Of Rambow. It’s been a long time coming but, after five years of work, Jennings’ third feature, Sing, is about to get its UK cinema release. When we caught up to chat last week, we talked about those five long years of hard work, about the projects that didn’t come together beforehand, and just a little of the plans that Jennings has for now. Here’s how our conversation went.

Second Opinion – Sing (2016)

25 January 2017 8:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sing, 2016.

Directed by Garth Jennings.

Featuring the voice talents of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane, Taron Egerton, Peter Serafinowicz, Tori Kelly, Garth Jennings, Rhea Perlman, Nick Kroll, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Saunders, Nick Offerman, Leslie Jones, and Adam Buxton.

Synopsis:

Koala bear Buster Moon (the voice of Matthew McConaughey) is easily the least successful impresario in the theatre world.  All his shows flop and, staring bankruptcy in the face, he decides to launch a singing contest.  One that attracts a long queue of hopefuls, including a crooning mouse, a heavy metal skunk, a shy singing elephant and a narcissistic pig.  But who will win the $100,000 prize?

With Gru and his Minions due to return this summer in Despicable Me 3, Illumination is plugging the gap with new animation, Sing, which borrows heavily from the unlikely combination of Disney and X-Factor.

Good Omens: Neil Gaiman, Amazon and BBC working on TV adaptation

19 January 2017 8:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Ahr Jan 20, 2017

The novel that brought Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together for a hilarious, apocalyptic thrill ride is set to become a comedy series...

Good Omens, a collaborative novel written by British authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, will be coming to the small screen via Amazon, BBC Studios and BBC Worldwide. They're working on six episodes, with a 2018 premiere in mind. The episodes will debut on Amazon Prime Video, before later reaching the BBC.

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

With Gaiman’s much-anticipated American Gods adaptation on the horizon for Starz, and with the recent success of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, a similar sci-fi comedy adaptation from fellow British humorist Douglas Adams, the omens are indeed good for this fantastical story to receive its own TV treatment.
